Back To Front Page


The Duneland School Board will hold an emergency session at 4 p.m. on Friday, March 20 using virtual methods, per guidance from the Indiana Public Access Counselor.

The purpose for the meeting is to approve two resolutions. The first resolution is to approve pay for DSC employees during the closure, and the second resolution is to establish expectations for employees working from home during the closure.

Per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines on preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, the meeting will be open to the public, but only 10 people will be admitted in-person at the Administration Center, 601 W. Morgan Avenue, Chesterton. Only Superintendent Dr. Chip Pettit and one Board member will be physically in attendance while the other Board members can call in or join virtually, per new guidance on public meetings handed down by Governor Eric Holcomb in an executive order Tuesday.

The public is welcome to follow the progression of the meeting virtually by visiting the Duneland Schools website at and clicking on “Administration,” then clicking on “School Board,” and clicking on “BoardDocs Scoreboard.”

After these steps, the Duneland School Corporation logo will appear on the screen as a placeholder until the meeting begins at 4 p.m., then the agenda will appear for viewers to follow along. The BoardDocs Scoreboard is always available on the Duneland Schools website. It allows viewers to keep up with the meeting by agenda item and see the result of votes in real-time.
